This drawing is a design sketch from the 15th century in the Timurid style.
It is one quarter of a "Cloud Collar", very fashionable at the time.

I rendered it in faux embroidery and placed it on a background with a Persian cloud band pattern.
The fabric arrived today and is shown unfinished on the dress form.
When finished, it will be lined and open down the front.

I also rendered it in calmer colors on a simurgh (phoenix) background.
Below, a section is shown of the graphic.

...and finished...

These and other designs are now offered for purchase in an online shop.
I am willing to entertain requests for color and background changes.
I can be contacted through my shop.

Note: Spoonflower, the fabric printing service that I use has changed it's site. In the past, if you entered 3 yards of fabric, you could see 3 yards displayed entire. Now, it only shows one yard, which makes it hard to see what you're getting if the fabric isn't a small, repeating one. Those interested in purchasing the caftans can find the deep coral colored caftan here, and the light blue here. It is formatted for 3 yards of Silky Faille 54" wide. There is a matching trim included at the side edges for the sleeves. Contact me through that page for resizing for different fabrics)
